Summary

The U.S. and Canada have the largest trading relationship of any two nations on earth. This leads to a concomitant amount of disputes, litigation and arbitration. This program will deal with some of the most pervasive issues that arise during legal disputes which cross the borders between the U.S. and Canada from a Canadian perspective. We drill down on practical issues such as where to commence litigation and why; how to oust Canadian jurisdiction where appropriate; how to obtain evidence in Canada for use in U.S. proceedings; the impact of key Supreme Court of Canada decisions over the past 20 years on the enforcement of U.S. judgments in Canada; Substantive and procedural advantages and disadvantages of the use of Canadian proceedings etc.. Every U.S. lawyer who deals with cross-border issues with Canada will want to attend this seminar.

Three (3) learning outcomes attendees will take away from the proposed presentation:
1. Identify key issues that arise in U.S./Canada Cross-border litigation and arbitration
2. Learn what is involved in enforcing judgments cross-border and what impact the SCC judgments have had on the trade relationship between U.S. and Canada
3. Learn about the importance of timely and continuous communication between U.S. and Canadian lawyers wherever disputes cross borders.
